The Best Security Cameras In The World are Here. 13 ways you can use them.
I'm always looking for important new applications for video surveillance technology.
This weekend I set up what may be a world first - a Mobotix camera protecting my beer fridge.
Specifically the camera sends me an email entitled "Fridge door has been opened". The email also has a photo attached of the 'crime' in progress.
The camera also plays the following loud message as soon as the offender opens the door: "Step away from the beer"
The exciting thing is I've barely scratched the surface in terms of what the camera is capable of - I'll probably test other alerts like having the camera phone me, post live video to a website, turn on a light etc etc.
By the way if you think this is silly, then I can offer this thought:
"You're never too old to be immature."
I hope 2014 is a year when you protect the things that matter most to you :-)
Security Camera Video - Tutorial on how to get it into the right format to give to the Police
A recent article in the Aug/Sept issue of NZ Security Magazine points out what the really disruptive technology will be.
The exciting thing for Auckland customers is that Mobotix already provides this capability!
What is it?
Good camera-edge-recording combined with Analytics.
Mobotix Q24 cameras already have both capabilities, so I guess as far as Auckland is concerned .. the future is now!
Preventive security 21st century style!

I'm starting to wonder how often these happen in Auckland ... this is the second one from our immediate circle of acquaintances in the past week!
0700 on a weekday morning. Broke into the car in the driveway, found the garage door opener in the car ( do you leave yours in the car overnight? ).
Used it to get into the house through the garage. Stole some stuff and scarpered with the car keys, house keys and door opener.
Any bets they're planning on returning?
House alarm? Useless! They were in and out in less than a minute.
Security cameras? Not yet.
A couple of footnotes:
1. Notice it's another daytime burglary. That's when most of them happen. That's also when security cameras work best!
2. Not all home invaders wear hoodies or balaclavas over their faces, as you can see from the picture above ... a suspect from an overseas home invasion. After all in daylight you look a little bit suss in a ski-mask in a residential street at 0700.
Keep safe Auckland and if you want a good chance of having the satisfaction of helping to lock up anyone who tries to do this to you and your family ... we'll gladly help out, and fast!
Ever wondered if the contractor actually spent 3 hours at your house?
We did. So we checked.
Actually no. Our CCTV camera showed him arriving at 0821 and departing at 1047. That's 2 hours and 26 minutes.
That's not 3 hours.
We'll be generous and pay them for 2.5 hours ... but not 3.
Ever noticed how "honest mistakes" never seem to come down in your favour? They always seem to favour the contractor or the vendor now don't they!
One of the most visited pages on the Auckland Security Cameras website is the Shop Theft Calculator.

Use CMS software as a DVR viewer for live footage
If you've had an analog system installed by us, there is a new App available which allows you to search recorded footage from your mobile device, not just view live video.
It's called VMeye Super and it's available in the App Store and best of all it's FREE.
Two men burgled a Grey Lynn home around Dawn on the 15th of June 2013, while Mum, Dad and their 3 year old were in bed.
Dad's wallet, Mum's car keys and then of course Mum's car, were stolen in a brazen, terrifying but all too common attack.
How did they get in? They prized open the locked front door!
1. Most home burglaries in Auckland happen during the day, many while people are at home. Perfect conditions for security cameras.
2. Alarms are useless and the baddies know it. Who leaves their alarm on while they're at home during the day?
3. Only security cameras are going to help you deter or catch these people.
Thankfully no-one was physically hurt this time.
Two final thoughts ... imagine you're a burglar prepared to do a home invasion to pay for your next fix. You see 10 houses in a row and 9 of them don't have security cameras. Would you rob the one that does?
And finally ... after the initial fright I suspect you're going to feel pretty angry with the perpetrators. How good would it feel to have crystal clear video of them to give to the Police?
